the last part may be a dramatization, but I did drink the water. My mother thought it was the funniest thing, luckily.

You can take holy water home with you? I did not know that. Do all Catholics take holy water home for their holy water needs? My knowledge of Catholicism is limited. I grew up in the Southern US. We were good protestants, Southern Baptist. We didn't cotton to those evil heathen Catholics from up north.

I don't know much about Catholicism either, I declared myself non-Catholic when I found out masturbation is a sin. That's not entirely a joke either, it was one of my justifications for not being confirmed as a teenager. :lol:
I don't know anything about other denominations of Christian and don't care to learn. I only take time to read non-fiction these days.

FWIW: my baptist minister said wanking wasn't a sin if you did it without lusting after women. Not a problem for me, as it turns out.

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Aren't loop holes the best. I don't remember ever talking about masterbation at church, just rock music and atheists...spoiler alert, both were frowned on.

why hasn’t anyone (from the church of satan for example) sued the holy crop duster for inflicting bodily harm with the spray?
have them water blessers argue in court that holy water doesn’t actually do anything.

A few years ago I had a lady friend who was a staunch Catholic. One day we passed by her church and she popped in for a moment. She came out and sprinkled me with Holy Water. I told her to stop. I felt sullied. The relationship didn't last.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.
